PURPOSE is a day program for adults with special needs that currently meets Monday - Thursday from 9:00-2:00, At PURPOSE our partners (clients) participate in the following areas:

  1. R.I.S.E

We use these four facets to teach job, social, and life skills in a fun and supportive community. Also, our partners work towards employment in our very own PURPOSE Mercantile Silo. Blue Sky is a place for our partners to belong...a place where their voices are heard and they know they always have a seat at the table.

As a volunteer you will be assisting with these activities to help our partners be successful.

Mission Statement

To provide a safe, happy and healthy therapeutic community that works to empower and propel our special needs citizens and their families to their fullest potential. We serve our valued clients by providing therapeutic horseback riding and respite, vocational and entrepreneurial opportunities.

Description

Blue Sky Therapeutic Riding and Respite was founded in 2010 by a group of people devoted to developing a comprehensive program to help those living with disabilities. This includes individuals with autism, physical, cognitive or emotional disabilities, and also their siblings, parents and caretakers. Blue Sky’s therapeutic riding center has helped many special needs individuals gain confidence and improve motor skills, cognitive ability and gain valuable life skills. Blue Sky offers the opportunity for riders of all abilities, including siblings of special needs individuals, to ride and compete in special events. We are creating an environment to teach life skills, offer the ability to participate in events such as Special Olympics, offer referrals to community resources and assist and offer support and respite to all members of a family with special needs children.
